To help academy trusts understand the roles and responsibilities of members, the National Governance Association (NGA) has published new guidance. The guidance applies to all academy trusts and includes a dedicated section which covers those trusts with a religious character.
Specifically, the guidance covers:
who members are and how many a trust needs
how members are appointed and what skills they need
where members fit into the wider governance structure and what they should do
how often members should meet, including details of the annual general meeting, and how decisions are made in these meetings
how members carry out specific tasks, such as changing the articles of association or removing trustees
what responsibilities members have if the trust becomes insolvent
As part of the guidance, there is also a “myth busting” section and a model members role description.
